History[edit]

A 1914 Railway Clearing House map of railways in the vicinity of Sudbury Hill Harrow (shown here as South Harrow)

On 20 November 1905 the Great Central Railway opened a new route for freight trains between Neasden Junction and Northolt Junction. Passenger services from Marylebone began on 1 March 1906, when three new stations were opened: Wembley Hill, Sudbury & Harrow Road and South Harrow.[3] On 2 April 1906 these services were extended to Northolt Junction.[4] On 19 July 1926 South Harrow station was renamed Sudbury Hill Harrow.[5][6]

The service was reduced to peak hours only from 7 September 1964,[7] due to a lack of demand. There was a temporary closure from 22 September 1990 to 7 October 1990.[8] In November 2004, however, following concerted efforts by the London Transport Users Committee, an hourly off-peak service was also provided. The station is served by an hourly local service between London Marylebone and Gerrards Cross. The station is close to the Sudbury Hill tube station on the Piccadilly line.

Connections[edit]

London Buses routes 92 and H17 serve the station.
